{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Are you looking forward to something fun this weekend?  I seem to have come down with a cold this week, so I'm just looking forward to recuperating, and of course packing for our upcoming move.  I usually hate packing, but I think I'm so excited about moving to our new space that this time I'm actually having fun packing and getting rid of clutter that we've accumulated during the last 4 years in our current apartment.  I've got a long to-do list before Monday, but in the meantime…

Here are a few links for your weekend reading pleasure:

That's it for me this week!  But before I run off for the weekend, I also wanted to mention an amazing conference coming up at the end of the month in Salt Lake City — the Altitude Design Summit!

So many of my favorite bloggers are scheduled to speak at the conference — and so many more will be attending.  I can't wait!  If you're interested in attending, you can check out the details right here.

Sweet + Simple Thank You Notes

I love receiving sweet little thank you notes from family and friends, but one of my resolutions this year is to get better about writing them in a timely manner.  I think I would be more inspired to write my thank you notes sooner if I had more pretty note cards nearby, like these sweet letterpress thank you cards from Papersheep

You may remember these food-inspired calendars by Claudia Pearson from my calendar round-ups a few months back, but I was so excited to learn that there is also a 12-month tea towel version!

Also very exciting — starting today, Claudia and chef Sung Uni Lee will be publishing a new seasonal recipe every two weeks over on Claudia's blog.  Each recipe will be accompanied by one of Claudia's illustrations, as well as nutritional information about the recipe.  I'll definitely be checking out Claudia's blog for seasonal cooking ideas!  In the meantime, you can find both the paper and fabric version's of Claudia's calendar right here.
